    I enjoyed the times we hung out together growing up or at least trying to., working on cars, family functions with the kids when they were just little ones or just having beers and shooting the breeze. You were a brother in a time of my life when I really needed one. Love ya Brother. RIP Rooner
    Sherry and My hearts and prayers go out to Pat, the Kids, family and friends in this time of need.
